Trump to hold rally in Panhandle next week

Trump is scheduled to appear at 7 p.m. Central time May 8 at the Aaron Bessant Park Amphitheater in Panama City Beach

President Donald Trump will hold a rally next week in Bay County, part of a heavily Republican region that could be important for his 2020 re-election campaign.

Trump is scheduled to appear at 7 p.m. Central time May 8 at the Aaron Bessant Park Amphitheater in Panama City Beach, his campaign announced Monday.

While Northwest Florida votes heavily for Republican candidates, Trump also will be visiting a region that is struggling to recover from the Oct. 10 Hurricane Michael.

Large parts of Bay County were devastated by the Category 5 storm, and state and local officials are calling for more federal assistance.
